- You can get free tickets to the Chicago Dancing Festival a week from today, meaning you can start making reservations for the performances that require them. Tickets will be staggered depending on venue and there is a limit of two per person per event. "Note that of the six free events that make up this year’s Festival, three require tickets and three do not, meaning anyone and everyone has an opportunity to enjoy the dancing." The actual festival starts August 20.

My First Time is still in full swing at Greenhouse Theater Center; this production comes from Broken Nose Theatre. It's about what you think it's about.
